The Catholic Accompaniment and Reflection Experience (CARE) Program is a new pilot initiative that was launched by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Office of Migration and Refugee Services (USCCB/MRS) in the fall of 2018. CARE is committed to connecting Catholic volunteers as well as men and women religious with fellow community members who are undocumented immigrants, unaccompanied children, and their families in need of accompaniment and emotional, social service, and spiritual support when integrating into their communities or attempting to comply with immigration proceedings such as reporting to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for check-ins or attending immigration hearings.
